George Takei as the Doctor!?

Written by: Christopher Lee

My friend Sarah (check out her blog) just picked up a ukelele and learned how to play “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”. She posted the achievement on facebook, to which I replied by posting the camping scene from “Star Trek V” where the crew sings along to Spock’s plinking on his Vulcan Lute. This, of course, resulted in me watching a few more clips from the classic adventure where I noted a quick, funny little thing…..

Sulu, better known as the social media giant George Takei, performing a quick little scene that, to me, felt VERY reminiscent of a certain “3rd incarnation” of everyone’s favorite travelling Doctor. As if we needed more proof of Mr. Takei’s awesomenitude (yeah, I just made that up, but it’s fitting and you like it.)

Watch from about :20 to :34…

 I mean, c’mon…the “capelet”, the “judo” (though, to be picky, it looks more like Aikido), the “sonic screwdriver-esque” tool he uses. It’s too obvious to me to NOT be a “nod”. What do you think?

Beautiful Space-Scape in Motion

Amazing space GIF’s HAVE to be shared with everyone in the world. So now share them. It’s your duty.

Young Bazilisk here (Sylvia to the “normies”), one of the contributers at the Nerd-Base has found this awe inspiring series of gifs taken of our sweet home. (we think she took them herself when she stole the cruiser from our moon base the other night).

Obviously, real credit goes to NASA. If you as well find these images as glorious as we do, please take the moment in whatever ways you find possible to support our space program as it is currently in danger of losing a devastating amount of funding come the next fiscal year.
